No: PPR/OSGF/PR/02.

According to Nwaobasi’s statement, the termination of Umar’s appointment was “with effect from the November 25, 2013.”

NewsRescue editor– It is possible the president is struggling to find out who exposes his every move to the press; most urgently after the press described upset Ministers reporting him “eloping with the Minister of petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madukwe in the UK,” which has been obviously very damaging to his reputation and possibly his marriage. The press also reported that he got drunk-sick after his 56th birthday celebrations, attributing this to his hospitalization and missing the investors’ council meeting he went to attend.
